The University of Bern in Switzerland invites applications for 1 Post Doc and 1 PhD position in Economic Geography.
The positions will start on November 1, 2020.
The application deadline is June 15, 2020.
The full-time positions are part of an international research project on industrial towns in Switzerland and Slovenia. The 3-year project is funded through the Swiss National Science Foundation.
The project will examine industrial transformation in small and medium-sized towns. We analyze how these processes play out at the firm/sector level and how they affect communities (workers, families, civic society, etc.). We will focus on current crises such as Covid-19 and its impact on industrial culture, innovation dynamics and community response. We will conduct case studies in Switzerland and utilize qualitative and participatory research methods. The Post Doc and PhD will collaborate with our Slovenian research partners from the Anton Melik Geographical Institute in Ljubljana and will have the opportunity to participate in joint workshops and research visits.
